Rural Delivery News

Congressman James G. O’Hara has been advised by the Post Office Department that no action will be taken on consolidation of rural delivery service in the Deford, Kingston, Clifford area until alternative methods of achieving the same economies are reviewed.

The department previously had announced plans for consolidation of rural delivery service out of Deford, Kingston and Clifford. It had been proposed that the consolidation take effect on May 9.

As a result of a rural carrier vacancy at Deford, the department instigated an investigation to determine whether the vacant position could be absorbed by a consolidation of the rural route with other routes in the area. This was in accordance with the department’s policy of keeping costs as low as possible and still providing needed postal services.

Announcement of the department’s intention to postpone final action on the proposed consolidation came in a letter to O’Hara from Assistant Postmaster General W. M. McMillan.

Michigan Laws

One of the maxims which has long guarded the rights of Americans and of their English forebearers is that "A man’s home is his castle." For centuries, this maxim has meant that citizens, whether they dwelled in huts or mansions, were the sovereigns of the domain of their household, and that even the State had to beware before intruding.

For the public safety, however, it sometimes becomes necessary to penetrate the privacy of the home. Houses and other structures can easily become the abode for stolen articles, narcotics, gambling apparatus, or other illegal goods. In such situations, it becomes necessary for law enforcement authorities to search such structures, but only under certain restrictions.

The laws of the State of Michigan state that though persons are secure from searches of their homes, searches and seizures of illegal goods can take place by means of a search warrant or in pursuance of a lawful arrest.

A search warrant can be obtained from any magistrate upon complaint that illegal goods are present in a certain premises, which complaint must be supported by an affidavit from a person who has fresh and recent knowledge that the illegal goods are existent in the particular premises.

On the occurrence of a legal arrest by a peace officer, he may search the immediate area of the premises where the arrest is made. Such search by an arresting officer must be immediate and must be pertinent to the crime for which the arrest was made.

The restrictions on unreasonable searches and seizures are some of the most essential foundations of the freedoms which American enjoy. They are also usually the first restrictions which are violated by police states when attempting to impose a tyranny upon peoples.
